SHORT-TERM: CPCE TOP SIGNAL TRIGGERED BUT NEED A CONFIRMATION TOMORROW
The market chose to breakout on the upside but I’m not convinced yet, as a general pattern, the very first time of a narrow range breakout is usually a false one, the real breakout could be on the opposite side, so at least we need see if the market could follow through tomorrow.
The most important signal today is the 3 points validated CPCE trend line is broken signalling a top of some kind. Those who have been reading this blog for awhile should remember that this is a very reliable top signal, so be careful here. The signal needs a confirmation tomorrow though, i.e. the trend line must hold the pullback, if any, so again, we need see tomorrow.
Another thing worth mentioning today is Sentimentrader Smart/Dumb Money Confidence Spread, now it’s the 2nd record high on the chart.
INTERMEDIATE-TERM: COULD BE WAVE 5 UP TO SPX 1300+, PIVOT TOP COULD BE AROUND 01/05 TO 01/12
